This year has been a pretty rough one for Nanook. Back in October he tore his cruciate ligament. I took him in to talk about surgery or a leg brace. After being considered for surgery it was found that Nanook had two tumors (one on his liver and the other on his spleen). The spleen was removed but the tumor on his liver could not be. Fortunately after biopsy both tumors were benign. Fast forward to about two weeks ago, Nanook has tore his meniscus in the same leg. Surgery is unavoidable. I have spent around $4,000+ this year on the surgery for his tumors, chemo to keep the liver tumor from growing into his organs and visits regarding his leg even prior to the meniscus tear. His next surgery will fix both the CCL tear and the torn meniscus. Unfortunately it has to be paid outright on February 28th. I have been able to pay his other surgery on a credit card. My pride makes it hard for me to ask for help but I am getting worn thin and my savings is dwindling. I fear for any other issues that may happen with his health or Little Gary's (my cat). The surgery will cost around $3,000. Any donations would be more than appreciated.
